I’m not gonna lie. When I moved to Austin from Michigan I most definitely expected to be riding my horse to school wearing my sparkly red cowboy boots.
My second grade knowledge of Texas may have been a bit twisted from the real deal, so boy was I surprised when I touched down in beautiful Austin and there wasn’t a cowboy in sight. Now — we did live in the hill country, so we had our fair share of rattle snake and tarantula scares (no joke y’all), but luckily I made it through the scorpion and black widow frights as a child. But I’m just playing up the Texas stereotype: there’s truly no place like home. And when it comes to calling Austin home, I’ve definitely learned what its style is all about. Texas style (you know all the western movies kind of style) is different than Austin style. Austin is casual, effortless, chill, laid back and cool.
Today I’ve partnered with Boohoo, a UK-based fast-fashion site with allllll the goods (you can’t beat these prices though, you just can’t). Why Boohoo? Because they’re hosting just the coolest Pop-up shop in Austin (located at 2120 Guadalupe St.) starting now and lasting till October 15th. The programming is killer, the meet-and-greets are amazing (including one of my favorite UT girls and friends: Jeanine Ampola), and you can shop till you drop. I’ll be hanging out with the Boohoo team at ACL next Saturday (wahoo!) and it sounds like a lot of other amazing girls will be too (check out the full list here). This lace-up sweater instantly is a favorite – as I already foresee myself throwing this sister on to take out Chloe during fall weeknights or wearing this chica to happy hour paired with the cutest booties. These jeans by Boohoo are such a steal + I’m totally digging this purse. You can’t beat the prices at Boohoo and I love how flawlessly Boohoo’s outfits are fitting right into my Austin-esque style.
